Hidden Gem
I booked this cottage for a somewhere to stay the night before my wedding and for a few days away after. I love how they have managed to keep that quirky medieval charm yet put in all the luxury of the modern times. I had a few people come to visit and each person loved it! Set in beautiful surroundings with everything you need on its doorstep. The stairs are steep to get up to the property but if I can get up and down in a wedding dress anyone else should find them a doddle! Beamed ceilings, real fire, country walks and pubs in the village what more do people need :) Plus the priest is a great character with many stories to tell if your interested.

The standard of the of the accommodation decor was outstanding, the kitchen was fully equipped and even had a dishwasher. It was also beautifully clean and very comfortable. The location is very central and it was easy to visit places of interest in the area.
Mrs English

We most enjoyed the history of the building (14th century). The owner and the locals were all very friendly. The Porter's Lodge has been restored to a very high standard and it is not just clean, it sparkles! As we had our dog with us we were pleased to be able to reach the park just a minute away up the drive.
Mrs Ahlen

Excellent does not cover this property. It was splendid, superb and magical.
Miss Badawi

A nice spacious accommodation well furnished spotlessly cleaned and everything you could have needed appliance wise. Furnished in style to match the character of the building. A nice warm welcome, well positioned for local attractions and plenty of walks for the dog.
